Hailing from the mighty state of Texas, JV represents a new breed of dance music producer and DJ – one that blurs genre lines by intelligently fusing together elements of house and techno to simultaneously move dance floors and provoke the imagination. With over a fifteen record releases under his belt, JV’s “deep-yet-dancefloor” sound has been turning heads and catching the attention of those in the know, such as Hernan Cattaneo who selected JV’s “Grand Theft Vinyl” track for inclusion on his highly acclaimed Renaissance Masters CD compilation.
Exploring and experimenting in the studio since 1996, JV launched his career in 2002 with the release of “Into the Blue” on NYC-based Fade Records. With high chartings and heavy support from the world’s top DJs, “Into the Blue” was only a small indication of things to come. Since then, JV has gone on to release records with an impressive list of labels from around the world such as Sensei Records, Dorigen Music, Cove Recordings, Groove Pleasure, So Sound Recordings, Tangent Beats, and Sugarcane Recordings among others.
JV displays his willingness to take risks and defy genre confinements not only as a producer, but also as a DJ. On the decks, JV takes the dance floor on a journey through chunky grooves, infectiously techy patterns, and warm atmospheric textures. With recent gigs in Brazil, Greece, Bulgaria, England, Costa Rica, Mexico, and throughout the U.S., JV’s sound receives the same great response from notably diverse crowds.
Having established his place in the dance music community, JV stands shoulder to shoulder as label mates with some of the most respected producers on the globe such as Terry Francis, Grant Dell, Jay Tripwire, Mazi, and Morgan Page to name a few.
